    Pros

    Not sure there are pros any longer.

    Cons

    The management moving in or up is atrocious, all they care about is their bonus which us essentially based on how much they screw their employees out of pay. I'm not sure the entire company is like this but the north dakota region is.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront stop promising one thing then doing the complete opposite of said promise. Stop promoting the individuals who are crappie employees just because you know they will cow to your every whim and question nothing. this is a recipe for absolute failure.

    Pros

    Diverse population, 4 month maternity leave if you've been there for 1+ years,

    Cons

    POOR MANAGEMENT, No support for Higher Education, Empty Promises, Inadequate HR team,
    Top down reviews only allows for poor management to stay in place, NO BONUSES, Work like a modern day slave; always working on holidays, unable to roll over vacation days to next year, honestly just plain HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT creates a negative vibe throughout the HUB.

    Advice to Management

    SLB needs to clean house on the management they have employed at the HUB-- Send out a bottom up review and see how little the managers support their teams.
